We found this book to be so funny! I laughed out loud throughout this wonderfully silly book. Can’t wait to try this one on the kindergartener in my life 😉 Henry Cole’s illustrations of the biting hamster are hilarious and his comeuppance at the end even more so. Did I mention I once inherited a school library hamster we called Houdini??? It could also have been named
Even I have to admit, I laughed out loud. It’s a silly book that paired with Henry Cole’s illustrations of Ferocious Fluffity, the biting hamster, make the story even more hilarious.
Visit your local library or bookstore and delight in the silly story of Ferocious Fluffity!
